Itís the 22th anniversary of the founding of the Raisin Pickers, the Manchester-based string band that plays rustic Appalachian music, swingy jazz and bluegrass. Carol Wells Palms (string bass, fiddle, vocals) is a classically trained string player who captures the heart of traditional music. Mark Palms (banjo, fiddle, guitar, accordion, vocals) is a player and avid proponent of traditional music and American musical heritage. In his words, "It's diversity of music that drives my interest in culture, and I strive to honor that legacy in my original music." David Mosher (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals) was named Country Instrumentalist of the Year at the Detroit Music Awards in 2004. This concert is part of the UMHS Summer Courtyard Concert Series presented by Gifts of Art.
